I completely understand mental blocks about thinking of a topic.

Welcome to HPR.

Thanks for the show

I was intrigued by what I heard of Go on 'FLOSS Weekly' last year and more recently on 'The Changelog' but I hadn't looked at it in detail yet.

Your episode motivated me to look deeper and I'm keen to try it out. Thanks for the useful links too.

The more I play around with Go, the more I like it. I've been writing a fair bit of stuff in Go recently.

The latest is which I wrote so I could talk to web APIs from shell scripts. Always good to have a reason to write some code :)

Ooh topic idea: how HTTP works.
